The risk to public employers of a lawsuit has never been greater. Nationwide, plaintiffs’ lawyers file more lawsuits alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) than any other type of employment law violation — and the penalties for these types of violations can quickly reach six, even seven figures.
Are you in compliance?
Employers that violate the FLSA can face substantial liability. Collective action and class-action lawsuits brought on behalf of a group of employees have become commonplace. These suits can expose employers to staggering costs for back pay, liquidated damages, and attorneys’ fees.
Employers increasingly face civil penalties and possible criminal sanctions as the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has stepped up its FLSA enforcement activities, too. As if this weren’t all enough to deal with, the federal government has proposed new regulations designed to dramatically increase the number of employees eligible to receive overtime.
Avoid these types of costly lawsuits with this strategic webinar, the third in IPMA-HR’s Essentials of Employment Labor Law series. Presented by David Ritter, a 30-year veteran of employment and labor law and partner at Barnes & Thornburg, you’ll learn how, with the adoption of a few easy steps, you can help ensure your agency remains in compliance.
